« Beautiful hotel, excellent staff, excellent location »

Staying at the Fairmont was good, the hotel has an excellent location in downtown Calgary. The room we've got was small but served well to our purposes. The bathroom was renovated and the room was very clean. I thought I would have Wi-Fi included but it's not (weird). Overall great stay.

« hotel needs renovation in the lobby »

nice room, good service lobby was depressing and dark. Lobby bathroom had a foul odor-unable to even enter hotel like this should be attached to a shopping area the black pants and shirt uniforms of the waitresses look creepy,like prison guards

« Terrible! An overpriced & tired old hotel with old ripped robes and right next to a loud train.  »

I arrived without a reservation at 1am on a Friday. My rate was $278.00 plus taxes. Very disappointing, as the hotel was offered for $168 on various different travel websites. However, my internet connection on my United airlines flight was down, and I was unable to book the room for that price. My disappointment stems from the fact that I was overcharged, in my opinion, and the amenities are not up to date with the rest of the Fairmont chain. I am an SPG Gold member for life, a Marriott gold member for life and at one point I was a Faimont member with status due to my Air Canada Platinum status. However, my experince is not making me rush back to the Fairmont properties anytime soon.

Overall all quite satisfied. Good valet service and very nice front desk staff and check in progress. Room was as advertised and clean. Bed was comfortable. Great central location to many Calgary favorites.

« Very disappointed  »

We went there because the hotel has a swimming pool thought that our child would enjoy it very much. It turned out the pool was very dirty and looked like it hasn't been cleaned for a few months. People would usually expect a higher standard for Fairmont hotel. We brought it up to the check out agent, no action was taken. So, pretty disappointed customers here and would look else where next time.

« Nice rooms; very mediocre restaurant »

Valet and front desk check-in agent was very nice. Room was clean and ready when we arrived. Valet parking was convenient and easy. HOWEVER, we had a reservation for The Oak Room restaurant. When we arrived at 6pm, we were seated and the hostess gave us ONE MENU for four people (!!). When the waiter arrived, we asked for menus for everyone - he retrieved two (still not enough) and then eventually one more when asked again. Very bizarre since we were literally the only people in the restaurant. Waiter was doing his best but is totally out of place for a high-end expensive restaurant. We asked about the Chef's 3 course menu and the waiter proceeded to pull out a crumpled old full sheet of paper from his pocket and very awkwardly try to read the 3 course menu list. Again very strange for a high end restaurant, why is this not memorized? Waiter was awkward, dripping wine/water on the table when pouring our drinks, I can't believe this meets Fairmont's standards for their main dining room. The food itself was good - not excellent but good enough. It is a total missed opportunity in an otherwise nice hotel. I don't fault the waiter - he seemed a little flustered but doing his best - but he is obviously not suited for this role. Breakfast buffet in the morning was nice, and the waiters serving drinks were great. We also had spa reservations - the experience was good. A little bizarre to be paying top dollar and find the spa pool full of kids running around. They're having fun - good for them - but this is totally out of place for a Fairmont spa. Last point - your elevator banks (4) are not connected?? They seem to operate in sets of 2 (on each side). So every time you get on the elevator, it stops randomly on other floors to pick up no one, because people pressed the button on both sides and then took the first elevator that came. Why not connect these? Strange to be constantly stopping on floors that have already been served by the other elevator bank, it slows down everyone. These should be connected and everyone would get in and out much faster without unnecessary stops. Aside from the restaurant, it was overall a good experience. Just pointing out obvious areas for improvement. We had a nice evening there overall.

As mentioned already, everything was good until we tried to get our car when checking out.

« not my best visit with your hotel »

I hated the room, I felt claustrophobic due to it's low ceilings, and being over furnished. I have stayed in other Non Gold rooms that were by far nicer. The day of my massage the receptionist / attendant was pretentious and unwelcoming. To be frank I felt like she was rather annoyed to have to show me where everything was. I'm grateful that the massage therapist was beyond amazing and his hard work made up for the inhospitable experience earlier.

I did not appreciate to be woken up at 0430 hrs by the phone, when I answered there was nothing, similar to a wake up call. When I mentioned it to the staff on checkout she apologize plainly.
